. it would be progrowth and no more tax hikes by the way. spending and the debt are the top issue of concern for voters. look, these heinous mass murders are not about weapons. question -- why isn't anyone tackling the really tough issue that may be the root causes of these atrocities? such as broken families, such as the absence of fathers who set examples for their sons? such as the loss of faith in our schools? such as our homes and our culture that have lost faith as well. tonight, we are going to talk about the family values breakdown in america. "the kudlow report" begins right now. another key point tonight. for most of the history, america drew at 3.5% per you. the last dozen years however, we have dropped below 2%. and the so-called obama recovery is just a tad above that 2% rate. which should be unacceptable. it is the worst in the post world war ii era. so the question tonight, what's holding back the american economy? here's my quick road map for an economic boom. start off with major cuts in government spending. we should stop paying people not to work. then cut large and small

as if the democrats are the parties of tax and spend, the republicans are the party of borrow and spend. did you see any evidence of the bush administration that there was any entitlement cutbacks? i don't believe most republican politicians have discipline when it comes to spending or they wouldn't have been nearly as profligate, give me a break. this won't be much of a show count. republicans -- come here, come here, the republicans, they don't want to cut spending either. embarrassing the president is one thing, but actually offering plans to cut medicare, social security, defense, oh, please. i'll believe it as i see it, even though i think it's important that it be done. both parties guilty of too much spending. the democrats witt vitriolic, t to make money to pay for it. and enough politics. the american investor figures out we're pretty long through the united states of three-ring circuses. the most important spur for investment is confidence. three issues that held up business formation and stock investing for a long time. put a drag on it. uncertainty of the presidential election, uncertain
phone 5 sending shares below. >> did you see your paycheck on friday? the payroll tax hike obviously kicking in for many americans. felt like a pay cut. will this be a temporary shock or a headwind as stocks hover at five-year highs. >> ubs achoirs tnt after a commission throws up road blocks. >>> to the top story. in the pre-market, we've seen apple shares fall below $500 for the first time in 11 months. the tech giant has cut its orders for iphone 5 components because of weaker than expected demands. screen orders for january to march quarter have fallen about half. the company had planned to order. apple said to cut orders for components other than screens. now, jim, we've had sort of this concern about demand for the iphone 5. i think last week when deutsche bank came out with the note from the japanese team, specifically citing this very issue, that's when the concerns really started to mount and the stock really started feeling the impact. >> i think that there's something wrong with the iphone 5. i think that samsung has come on very strong. when you go to a resaler, the sales
, gun control connects to immigration, connects to all the spending and taxes, issues and will they have some way where they'll say, let's work together or are we going to have four more years of this petty, stupid fighting on things that makes everyone look ridiculous, and no one comes out the winner. >> >> chris: before i get to you -- and what about the president's side of it? do you agree that he has taken a more combative tone since the election? >> he has. but, you know, we were going to have tax increases for everyone and he, and to speaker boehner's credit. they wound up agreeing and did biden and mcconnell, that we're going to give 99% of the people in this country a permanent tax cut. that is a big accomplishment and of course everyone dumped on it when it happened but the 99% of the people who got the tax cut, i think, are quite happy. i think they haven't figured out a strategy in the white house, just like the republicans don't have one. >> there are two issues, issues the president ran on is the election campaign and, he has no credit abilities to say, i won the re-election
clinton's second term, he made significant progress on balanced budgets and ronald reagan accomplished tax reforms. >> even if they're dealing with other problems. >> and we have been fortunate to be scandal-free and we want to continue that, but if you look, it's not like we're roaming around the west wing looking for things to do. right now in front of congress and the country you have the need to reduce the deficit and continue to grow the economy, energy and climate change, immigration, gun safety. things are stacked up. and so i think that that is going to provide the sort of focus and energy you need and i think his intention is to run through the tape all the way through. >> gun safety has jumped to the top of the president's agenda since newtown and this week the president promised that the weight of his office behind these proposals, but we're already seeing a lot of resistance from democrats and i want to show some of the reaction this week. senator max baucus "before passing new laws we need a thoughtful debate that respects responsible law abiding gun owners in montana instead
cliff, this isn't a new tax. it's a return of an old tax but playing havoc with domestic stocks. so is all of the partisanship that makes our country seem like a mickey mouse place to invest and uncertainty going forward, every single democratic government on earth seems to be better organized and smoother functioning than ours. that uncertainty caused by that lack of confidence and higher payroll taxes might have something to do with the declines. telco was a place to hide back in 2012. at&t and verizon saw slow downs. apple and samsung, we love these companies because they had no europe last year, in china, no mexico. now we wish they had all three and there was business formation. let's focus on the other half of the equation. it's a little. where the money is going. last night china heads to one more marketable session. holy cow, courtesy of new attitude. the gold double digit growth is taking up the fxi. follow along, but it is taking up to the ancillary chinese place, like coach. did you see that today. rallying more than $2. we are seeing steady names in big commons. totallin

"the cycle" is on fire. >>> the house is back and getting serious about the constitution. members spent 1:05 reciting the entire u.s. constitution. it's the basis of our government, of course, but this is only the second time ever the entire document was read aloud in the house. >> we the people of the united states in order to form a more perfect union -- >> no person except a natural-born citizen shall be eligible to the office of president. >>> the powers to all cases of law and equity. >> full faith and credit given in each state to the public acts. >> congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. >> neither slavery nor involuntary servitude shall exist within the united s

of the rich. it is the party of lower taxes. but there are a lot of people who are lower down the food chain, the economic chain, also paying lots of taxes relative to their income. and they need help. we need more education work being done in this country. we need a solid immigration policy. we have to look at climate change there are a lot of things that the american people are expecting and the republican party, as they get ready for the next election, really has to focus on some of these issues and not ignore them. everybody wants to talk about who is going to be the candidate you better think first about what's the party actually going to represent? if it's just gonna represent the far right-wing of the political spec trouble, i think the party is in difficulty. i'm aed moderate but i'm still a republican, that's how i was raised. until i voted for mr. obama twice i voted for seven straight republican presidents. >> a couple of other foreign policy matters, what should the force, u.s. force in afghanistan look like after next year? >> i think the president's on track here. we've done by
attention in russia to putin's 13% flat tax. i mean, that is a very low tax in a country where inequality of income is just gigantic. right up there with america's inequality of income. there is a lot of resentment among ordinary russians are people who are making millions and millions of dollars a year in russia are paying only 13%. there's another side potential consequence. putin, russia is turning east. it's turning away from europe and that's the subject of a much longer discussion. but, putin, russia's two main allies in europe have been germany and france. the german relationship has soured. the french relationship has not soured. but if this goes down, this act or stunt of taking russia, by the way, he's not going to live in russia. he just took the passport. but if this goes down badly in france, for any reason, it will further fray russia's ties with the west and russia's turn to the east. that's not good for any of us, i think. >> stephen cohen william browder, thank you for joining us. fascinating conversation. up next, what in the world, why the country with the world's great
of march. there is no question that these big fiscal issues, taxes and spending will define the first quarter of the president's second term. >> george, talk about this term, the second term curse. we -- reagan had iran-contra, nixon had watergate. clinton had monica lewinsky. why is it that they tend to go sour. >> lyndon jonls had to resign before he ran because of vietnam. ever since roosevelt and the amendment that limited his terms, presidents tend to run out of steam and maybe even get tripped up by scandal in these second terms. i think it's kind of a natural reaction to the fact that power is moving on beyond these presidents because, in fact, they are lame ducks. the obama white house has studied this very, very closely. they know the perils of the second term. they think they can avoid the worst pitfalls, first of all, they are saying there's no scandals on the horizon but believe they can avoid the worst by having a focused agenda and moving fast. >> we'll see if they can. george, thank you very much. george will have a special inauguration edition of "this week" this morni
mean, you really think we must be doing terrible. we have higher payroll tax, a gridlock in washington, but the actual job growth is very out of sync, and it almost says like, listen, we got rid of this, let's start hiring. we may be looking at this debt ceiling, and i'm going to invoke shakespeare, the bard, that this may be much ado about nothing. i'm going there. right here. >> right now? the cliff is -- >> don't you love -- you know, when i first heard, i thought what a great title, i said no, moran, take the shakespeare course first the it's going to be claymation death match, maybe ufc, you and i watch that in our spare time -- not -- but i don't think it's as important as getting through the fiscal cliff. people are hiring again. >> dow transports continue to hit six-year highs. >> even as crude is up 95. >> it's like a market that has transport leadership. did you see union pacific? we had mike's southern on "mad money" he says point-blank, the hole has bottomed and is starting to go higher. and be good to the shutdowns, the coal plants. don't forget china has been burning coal
on to the tax rolls and hopefully the voting rolls as well. >> the tax rolls piece is important here. the president is beginning to talk about the possibility of entitlement reform. that entitlement reform is on the table. is there a progressive way to do entitlement reform? is there something that the democr democrats should give on this, or ought we be holding the line on these issues? >> well, there is a lot we can do. take medicare for instance. i think that medicare has a way to be fixed. i met this past or two days ago with representatives from the aarp. i have looked at senator beckett's from alaska, a proposal he has put forth for the fixed social security. i really believe that there is a lot that can be done. we just have to sit down and do it in a comprehensive way. i don't think that you should do these things piecemeal. social security has nothing to do with the deficit, and it ought to be dealt with as a separate issue, but it has a lot to do with settling issues in the economy, because social security is a wedge issue if you don't get it fixed. so, let's fix social sec
to get through immigration, gun control. he wants to raise taxes probably again. and the challenge on those issues is, those democrats are, the president doesn't have to run for reelection. but they're worried he'll drag their numbers down. >> what about the people going through the 2014 congressional elections, do they look to the president as being someone who will help them fund-raise? do they rely on him for that or do they move past because he's getting into that lame duck status? >> it totally depends on the member and what kind of house district they represent or the state. except for some extreme cases, democrats representing really red states or obviously republicans, usually when offered the help from the president, they say, yes. the money you get from it is really so good. it's the best find of fund-raiser you can have if you're in a tough race. we'll see if he's popular in a few years. if he's not popular coming up to the 2014 elections, i think we'll see a lot of members fund-raise with him maybe halfway across the country. >> we're going to change to debt ceiling now
to collect in taxes. he says okay there's a difference there. i've got to borrow it. no, you can't borrow it. so the whole debt ceiling thing itself is a crazy thing and forces the president to do something illegal. either to defy congress on what it told him to spend or defy them on borrowing and told him not to and have the weird loophole which everyone agrees is crazy. but is a loophole that says that the secretary of the treasury can mint a coin for any amount which is supposed to be for commemorative pieces but does avoid -- does offer a way to bypass this and all that's really doing is the way to bypass the debt ceiling. it isn't even printing money but saying, hey, we're going to say that we minted the coin. you don't even have to mint the thing, just say you did, right? >> well, you would have to but -- nobody ever has to see it. say we did it and the federal reserve says, okay, you now have a $1 trillion bank account which we will, when you withdraw funds from that, we will sell off some of our government bonds which is just a way of borrowing through the back door but it gets you p
% of gdp, that we've got to fight to cut taxes, that we've got to fight to cut corporate tax rates, we've got to inform entitlements, we've got to do these things i think conservatives are best suited to do, instead of being engaged on fights on the periphery. we've got to narrow our focus and get back to first principles, and if we don't do that, the republican party's going to be in the minority for a very long time. >> joe scarborough from "morning joe," i like "afternoon joe" too. thank you very much. >> i like your time slot a lot better than ours, actually. 1:00's okay. >> try it some time, sleep in a bit. >> i'd like to. >>> coming up next, the gun lobby reacts to the president's proposals and that nra ad. >>> plus, biden, bloomberg, and gabby giffords. there's a trio inside "time's" special edition on gun control. this is "andrea mitchell reports" only on msnbc. i'm up next, but now i'm singing the heartburn blues. hold on, prilosec isn't for fast relief. cue up alka-seltzer. it stops heartburn fast. ♪ oh what a relief it is! maybe you want to incorporate a business. or prote
